Lindsay Lohan has already grabbed herself another gig to follow-up the almost assuredly disappointing movie The Canyons. The actress will be reuniting with Scary Movie 5 cameo artist Charlie Sheen in the sitcom star’s FX comedy Anger Management. This role is said to be that of love interest following an initial stint as Charlie’s patient. So what do we think of LiLo the sitcom star? Well, it could not possibly be as bad as her dramatic vehicles so why not? Oh, and let’s not forget there’s a double end to all this. Anger Management has only had so-so ratings as of late which is what happens when you’re a multi-camera sitcom airs on a network known for its single-camera dramas. Repeats should loom large, but this might give the show just the type of boost it needs to keep rolling in originals.
Anger Management airs Thursday nights of FX.
There is a new R-rated trailer out for a movie that we never actually heard of before, but it is happening so we feel the need to address it. Director Vince Offer (the ShamWow! guy) has put together a film that casts Rob Schneider and Adrien Brody with Michelle Rodriguez and Lindsay Lohan in a bit of a random, slapstick comedy along the lines of what else we have seen for the front half of the year. Called InAPPropriate Comedy, the pic aims to compete with A Haunted House, Scary Movie 5 and Movie 43 which all pretty much reside within the same niche. Of the four, Scary Movie 5 is the lone PG-13 offering which means it should win, but who knows? Maybe this is Hollywood’s next goldmine which would explain the sudden saturation. Continue Reading
It looks like audiences will have their pick of two Paranormal Activity parody movies next year as the first trailer for Scary Movie 5 reveals that the found-footage property plays big to the film’s central plot. While the fifth installment of this slapstick comedy series also pokes fun at a handful of other big screen offerings, the lack of the R-rating might make this a second tier offering to Marlon Wayans’ A Haunted House which does feature the red-band warning. Having said that, Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan are in the latest Scary Movie (briefly) which might help give this franchise what it needs to once again find over $100 million worldwide.

Curious about the ratings for the Lindsay Lohan-led Liz & Dick? The Lifetime made-for-television movie premiered last night to 3.5 million viewers which is not exactly what we were expecting. The pic was widely publicized thanks to Lohan’s involvement, but the problem of course might have been who it was being sold to which might explain a few things. It also did not help that critics railed on the presentation which received only a 33 of 100 on Metacritic going into Sunday.
Ultimately, those 6.5 million who just tuned in to Steel Magnolias were not all completely sold on this partial bio effort on legendary actress Elizabeth Taylor, nor were the 5.8 million that watched Drew Peterson: Untouchable. Many might be quick to blame Lohan for this deficit, but ultimately it was perceived to be lackluster film-making as many pointed out on Twitter last night. Patton Oswalt was among the comedians live-Tweeting the event, and it might be worth a view for anyone trying to figure out what went wrong.
Lindsay Lohan was on The Tonight Show last night for her press obligations on the Lifetime film Liz & Dick. The second part of the interview is where she talks about hunting down the role, but she also discussed not doing that 20/20 interview Barbara Walters has been complaining about as of late. More on topic, Lindsay addressed her fondness for Elizabeth Taylor and her personal run-in with the iconic figure. Continue Reading
Jimmy Fallon had a recent run-in with Lindsay Lohan during Hurricane Sandy, and the result was a little cameo from the actress on yesterday’s show. Promoting her Lifetime movie Liz & Dick, she took part in one of the late night program’s weirder bits called Let Us Play With Your Look. It is best to just have a you take a look at what transpired than to try to explain it.
This is the first time Lindsay appeared on television since hosting Saturday Night Live last season. She was supposed to do a 20/20 interview, but dropped out at the last minute because her new PR representatives did not think a more serious take on the actress was advantageous to her career at this time. As a result, she still needs to make more appearances for her Lifetime original movie which has been settled by adding a Tonight Show interview to her schedule. That will air Tuesday, November 20 on NBC. Continue Reading
At long last, the air date has been set for the upcoming Lifetime movie Liz & Dick about Elizabeth Taylor’s relationship with Richard Burton. Prospective audiences of the Lindsay Lohan, Grant Bowler-starrer will be able to tune in on November 25 and the presumption will be that viewership will be relatively high. This film has gotten way more press than any other movie the cable network ever aired thanks in part to its tabloid queen leading actress which undoubtedly created a wave of awareness that would otherwise be vacant. Continue Reading
Cue incredibly tacky Lifetime movie! The trailer has just arrived for Liz & Dick which stars Lindsay Lohan and Grant Bowler (True Blood) in the title roles. There has been a lot of intrigue about this one, especially upon the revelation that people (including Lilo) were suffering from exhaustion on the set of this made-for-TV film. Lloyd Kramer has the directing credit on this one. Audiences can expect to see it in November 2012. Continue Reading
As many people are familiar with by now, Lindsay Lohan received a life preserver for her career via the upcoming Lifetime original movie Liz & Dick. The project seems ambitious judging from the fact that production caused a few people to be ‘treated for exhaustion’ (including Lindsay) due to long hours, but ultimately we are yet to see a shred of footage from the made-for-TV offering to suggest it all paid off. That said, today we managed to get a look at some brand new images of Lindsay as Elizabeth Taylor so hit the jump for the view. Continue Reading
Lindsay Lohan’s job of hosting Saturday Night Live may not have satisfied critics, but it definitely was enough to get America tuning into the sketch comedy series. Last night’s edition of the show was the second most-watched of the season with 5.5 rating overall, but more importantly a 3.3 in the 18-49 demo. That is actually a whole lot better than the bulk of NBC’s primetime programming. Does it mean the comeback is well underway for the actress? We shall see; however, this likely will not be the last time the actress will be hosting SNL as good ratings generally mean a return at the helm in later seasons.
Here is one of the biggest pop culture jabs from last night’s Lindsay Lohan-hosted Saturday Night Live: Real Housewives of Disney. The bit cast Abby Elliott as Belle, Vanessa Bayer as Snow White, Nasim Pedrad as Jasmine, Kristen Wiig as Cinderella, and Lindsay Lohan as Rapunzel. Taran Killam played was the only male cast member in this one as he played Cinderella’s “gay prince.”
Lindsay Lohan had the gig of hosting Saturday Night Live last night, and the whole segment was designed to mock her troubles as expected. Jimmy Fallon played a small part in the bit where he tried to pump the actress up (complete with mistaking her for Emma Stone at one point.) They even had Mad Men actor Jon Hamm cameo as a potential host should the Lohan thing not work out. Classic.
Lindsay Lohan was on Jimmy Fallon last night to promote her upcoming gig hosting Saturday Night Live. In the interview portion, she also talked about playing Elizabeth Taylor before going on to play a game of Pictionary with the talk show host.
